Transducers for displacement/position measurement
Featured Product from RDP Electrosense
Easy-to-use pre-calibrated displacement transducers
RDP’s DC-DC LVDT’s eliminate power supply selection concerns and grounding issues. Pre-calibrated with 0-10V or 2-wire, 4-20ma outputs. Ideal for machine tool, assembly equipment, materials testing, and OEM applications.
RDP's DCV series of DC-DC LVDTs offers a 0 to 10 volt output that is electrically isolated from the input eliminating concerns over power supply selection and grounding issues. The DCV units will operate from 14 to 26 volts DC. They are available in measuring ranges from 0 to .2 inch (5mm) up to 37 inches (940mm) with an output of 0-10 volts DC. Improved linearity and other standard options are available.
These transducers are for displacement / position measurement. They make an accurate position measurement of the movement of the armature (the sliding part) relative to the body of the displacement transducer.
This transducer uses the Linear Variable Differential Transformer (LVDT) principle which means that it is probably the most robust and reliable position sensor type available. The strength of the LVDT sensor's principle is that there is no electrical contact across the transducer position sensing element which for the user of the sensor means clean data, excellent resolution and a very long life.
The DCV DC to DC LVDT transducer has all of the benefits of the LVDT sensor principle with the added convenience of built-in LVDT electronics enabling a DC supply and an isolated DC output. They require no additional signal conditioning.
This series of displacement transducer is available as either an unguided, captive guided or spring return version.
A 2 wire, 4-20 ma version is available in RDP's DCC series.
